Books: "Monica's Untold Story: An Amorality Tale", with full-page watercolor illustrations. Written by an anonymous author and published by Regan Books, the book outlines the well-known story with commentary in poetic form. From Monicas troubled childhood in 90210 to the events in Washington, D.C. and beyond, Anonymous sheds new light on the now infamous facts. The effect is heightened by Bill Plymptons crazy drawings of Monica hovering over the Empire State Building, posing for the paparazzi, and uh, riding...um, President Clinton. Monica's book is now available in the Animation World Store for $12.00 plus shipping.
